Friends and Supporters of the Centre

The work of the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies relies heavily on donations. Every gift made to the Stanley Burton Centre is important for its activities in the future at the University of Leicester, the East Midlands, the UK and overseas. Among other activities, we constantly seek to improve and expand our collection of primary and secondary sources in our Resource Room for teaching and research, we support our PhD students, organise international conferences and lectures, and expand network activities with other institutions.
